    I have an amazing AMAZING opportunity to purchase a 1934 Hudson locally for a really good price, unfortunately it came up out of nowhere and recent purchases have drained my account; however, I’ve been able to scrape up enough from selling odds and ends and now I need just a little more to have...

    My photos are never in order any more, but that's not really a big deal. My most recent pickup is this Wilson Combat Colt, but a huge snowfall followed by a warm front that turned everything to slush and mud has kept me from really getting it out. This gun, my Rock River Arms Elite Commando and...

    I was debating taking this little 25 acp colt I got the other day, and doing a home refinishing job on it which I’ll probably regret and others may find entertaining. Would there be any interest in others seeing me fu…I mean attempt to make it look better? Lol the bluing on the slide is mostly...

    Anyone know when we will see colt bases become available again. I’m curious about lw commanders in 45 or 9 but $1600 is not going to be ok for me lol.

    It was a cold day here in Maine and temps are dropping fast, we'll be well below zero with wind chills for the next couple of days and everyone is layered up with their heaviest coats and flannel lined pants. I had to go to the "city" today and run some errands and decided that it's a good time...

    Colt WW1 1917 dated….looks like a project for someone with more balls than me and a dremel. I’d buy it if I knew how to remove those welds safely…and it was $1. Sounds like a job for a professional. 🤷‍♂️ https://www.gunbroker.com/item/920767425

    Just gonna make a new thread lol. Somehow them shipping me a government instead of a commander cost me more money cause now I’ll have a set lol Unfortunately, I tested positive for Covid, 2nd time after being vaccinated…don’t get me started… Got up today and decided fondling my new colt would...

    Not sure if this is a bargain but I’ve never seen an A1 short trigger on a Colt WWI type offering. Is this potential anomaly something that adds value? https://www.gunbroker.com/item/920246200

    Guy locally has what looks like a nice Colt 25 auto and he wants to trade for my Henry 22 lever action. Any idea what to look for on these or how much they’re usually worth? Seems from pics like it’s in decent shape, serial number puts it made in 1920. Grips look good and intact as well. Anyone...

    Okay I accidentally pressed a button so I gotta redo post lol So…if you’ve seen my earlier post, I recently ordered a Gunsite LW commander and they sent me the wrong gun, a government model instead. They offered to swap it out, however being the addict I am, I asked if they’d honor the sales...

    After seeing the Gunsite Lightweight commander on sale, Susan was kind enough to honor the sales price even weeks after the sale was over for when I had the funds to buy it. The box arrives at my FFL Wednesday, and I came down sick with what I hope isn’t Covid (I tested negative) so I haven’t...

    The colt shot great, however the trigger just seemed like there was some gunk preventing it from being “perfect”. I figured after 70 years of being carried or whatever…it’s bound to have some dust bunnies in it. So here we go: Nothing surprising here, all looks good to me except just so much...

    The second pistol I ever bought in my life was one of these. Foolishly sold it. Few weeks ago one popped up on GB. I bid more than I should have but eventually lost. Kinda bummed. But then two days later another one popped up. First one people fought over and it had almost 40 bids. This one from...

    Can somebody tell me why my local gun store has like 10 Turkish made 1911's in their show case, Meanwhile I haven't seen a new Colt 1911 in almost a year. I starting to think CZ bought Colt as a Tax write off.

    Just really putting my toes into the custom world and it’s rather difficult finding a birth year colt or a 70 series base at a decent price, for that matter. I do have a nice SCG I was thinking of using. I don’t mind chopping it up although the bluing on it is very nice as is. I personally...
  17. General 1911 talk
    I've been thinking hard about buying a birth year (1977) Colt and sending it to the Colt custom shop for the tactical package. Has anyone dealt with them since the CZ takeover? How is the wait time recently? And lastly, if you have sent a gun to them in the last few years, how satisfied are you...

    So I found one of these at a shop today. I should have taken a picture but you know how that goes. I was about to get it, but then I noticed the sear/disconnector pic was sticking out the right side by about 1/4". I asked the sales rep about it and they offered to drive it back in and I said...
